Kenny's photography skills are top-notch. He photographed my son's and daughter-in-laws engagement and wedding and the pictures are magnificent! Kenny is AWSOME! I highly recommend Nakai Photography to everyone!

I can't say enough about Nakai Photography. Kenny was phenomenal. Personable, professional and most importantly our pictures turned out beautiful! Our conversations leading up to the big day were executed perfectly. Thank you for helping us capture these wonderful memories.

As a serious perfectionist myself- I can confidently say there were very few people I 1000% trusted with the vision for my wedding. But, after looking at Kenny's work online & meeting him in person I was so impressed and knew he was the perfect photographer for us.
Starting with the engagement session- it was FREEZING outside but we barely minded with how much fun Kenny made it. My husband was not thrilled with the idea of engagement photos (i mean there are a lot of awkward ones out there lets be real) BUT he instantly changed his mind once he met Kenny. Kenny captured the most stunning shots, included our favorite parts of the city & even played around with our dog. He was game for anything, made us feel so comfortable and like he was a long time friend hanging out with us. By the end of the night, freezing and all, neither myself or my husband wanted the session to end and couldn't wait to work with Kenny again! Not to mention, the photos were to die for & made making save-the-dates nearly impossible with all of the options!
On to the wedding- our bridal party, family & guests STILL comment months later on how amazing our photographer was! Kenny captured every detail and moment perfectly. I never had to question his quality of work or if everything was getting taken care of (the amazing part of hiring another perfectionist). In fact, I woke up around 4am the next morning with edited photos from Kenny. I couldn't believe he barely slept, if at all, and instead went through all of our photos to have some ready for me when I woke up. I highly doubt many photographers do this, but it speaks to his passion for photography!
Kenny's photography is art and makes your wedding look like it belongs in the pages of vanity fair. After working with Kenny for awhile now from engagement shoot to finalizing our wedding album I can sincerely say hiring him was one of the best decisions I made and I am so thankful to have these photos to look at forever.
